“2 Philly kids who like to bump” is the only quote necessary to describe the collaborative project known as Louis Futon. In less than a year the Philadelphia based duo have take soundcloud by storm, targeting chart-topping hip hop tracks and flipping them into down tempo house, or “Future Lean” as they categorize it. Their remix of Mos Def’s “Ms. Fat Booty” passed a million plays, and their recent original “Mojito” has already racked up close to 100,000 downloads. Fans of Flume, Cashmere Cat and Sweater Beats will be all over this new flip on Future’s single “I Won” – listen and grab it below for FREE!

Kill The Noise is the ultimate homie – and if you didn’t know that by now then peep this Boomrat playlist he curated and you’ll catch the drift. From rap to Marilyn Manson anything goes for tunes that tickle KTN’s fancy. Personally, this was a fun one to go through because of KTN’s immaculate taste in up and comers. It helped me expand my sonic horizon’s so I’m sure it’ll do the same for you!
The LA jack of all trades Whiiite revamped Moguai’s original ACIIID into his newly established Future1Hundred treatment, a forward thinking fusion of trap, hip-hop and house. This one takes you into the opening scene of Blade as if you we’re actually there for the party (and not to be massacred). He’s given this one out for FREE to his fans, so grab it below and get the aciiid flowin…
It might be the end of Summer but things are just starting to heat up. Literally, and metaphorically, as the Bixel Boys share their best tunes to beat this sweltering heat wave. It features some of the sexiest sultriest cuts around – from RnB to Hip-Hop to Future Bass to that signature Bixel Bounce. Curated for the fine folks at Boomrat – this ain’t one to sleep on!
Dr. Fresch is back with a club ready rework of Nelly Furtado and Timbaland’s classic “Promiscuous.” Dr. Fresch’s injects his unique blend of deep, trap, and bass into this remix to bring the pop hit into the context of contemporary future music:
“It’s been way too long since I heard ‘Promiscuous’ played out in the club – I had to give the track a facelift so I could start dropping it in my sets and bring the heat back. The project clicked for me instantly, because of how the vocals lent themselves to be remixed from both a deep approach and a future approach as well. I’m excited to hear this one played out!” – Dr. Fresch
The Future Bass movement has taken firm footing in AC Slater‘s Night Bass shenanigans, and for good reason, it thumps. Galloping bass lines accented by walloping bass synths permeate this playlist. Curated exclusively for the dawg’s at Boomrat, it might be a choice decision to peruse before cruising to Night Bass tomorrow night (scattered in these selections are tracks from this weeks performers).
Dr. Fresh has been spitting hot fire lately. His most recent take on ‘Snoop Dogg’s – Sexual Seduction’ turns the legendary down tempo track into a futuristic dance floor heater.
Dr. Fresch on the remix:
“I’ve always been a huge fan of this song, because of how Snoop was able to mix his brand seamlessly with an 80′s inspired, retro yet forward thinking sound. Because of the different qualities that Snoop’s sung vocals and hip hop verse carry, I was able to use both differently to create a dynamic future remix that spans across several different genres, while maintaining true to my production style and brand.”
A couple of years ago, some friends took me to the famed weekly party, Low End Theory, to see one of the LA beat scene’s emerging artists, Astronautica. Although it was a while back, I still vividly remember her fantastic set, and it was this memory that spurred me to enlist her for our guest mix series. Since dropping her vibey Waikiki EP on Alpha Pup a few months ago, she’s been quiet on the release front, but she’s been staying busy with studio sessions in between tour dates. Now Astronautica delivers a smooth and eclectic mix of jams to help you get through the day in a positive way. If you’re around in LA this Friday, catch her live at The Do LaB event with Dimond Saints!
